Thanks for the feedback.

Here is my second try at Ghosted Lines and Planes: https://imgur.com/a/gtdUy1z

(I'll post these in the Discord as well)

I tried drawing from my shoulder more, and put more focus on confident strokes over accuracy.

Hello again I already see some great improvement nice job! there is a little wobbling in some of the lines but that's gonna be solved with some more practice. When you get better at drawing lines with confidence you can then start focusing your attention on accuracy but always try to keep your lines confident, drawn from the shoulder and ghosted you did great i'll mark this lesson complete.

Next Steps:

Next you should start getting ready for the 250 boxes challenge read the instructions carefully and follow them to the T, read through the boxes section of Lesson 1 as many times as you can. This challenge will not only improve your spatial awareness when its comes to rotating forms (boxes in this case) in 3d space it will help your lines too! good luck Bob.

This community member feels the lesson should be marked as complete. In order for the student to receive their completion badge, this critique will need 2 agreements from other members of the community.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
